Message From the Director

OVC's Publishing Guidelines describe the criteria grantees and contractors must follow when submitting materials to OVC to be published. We are committed to producing quality products and welcome this opportunity to help you develop dynamic and useful products that will both inspire and instruct the victims' rights and services community.

Most of our products are now published exclusively on our Web site, providing greater access to virtually all types of information. This guide includes tips on preparing information for the Web that will help you—the grantee or contractor—develop and organize content in a way that expedites the publishing process.

In addition to Web-based publications, we offer a wide range of educational multimedia products designed to enhance the skills of service providers. Because these products play an important role in advancing our training agenda, we have expanded the publishing guidelines to include basic principles that will help producers skillfully manage the production process. We hope you will find this section useful and informative when planning your video project.

As the federal office responsible for enhancing the Nation's capacity to assist crime victims and provide leadership in changing attitudes, policies, and practices to promote justice and healing for all victims, we look forward to working with you to produce products that meet and exceed professional standards of excellence.

Joye Frost
Acting Director

Office for Victims of Crime
